Re: Error message from gcc: "entry point putc_unlocked could not be l ocated ..."

If you weren't upgrading Cygwin on this machine, then follow
Vince's advice.  You have an older copy of cygwin1.dll on your system
somewhere.  Otherwise, just reboot.  You must have Cygwin services
running which prevent the newly upgraded DLL from replacing the
existing one.  You should have gotten a message from setup about this

You may have 2 versions of the cygwin dll then, post the contents of
cygcheck -s -v -r as an uncompressed attachment to the list. (and try a
search on cygwin1.dll and see if you can find it more than once.

I just installed cygwin1.dll 1.3.22-1 and gcc 3.2.3. Attempts to compile with gcc result in the error message:

"entry point putc_unlocked could not be located in the dynamic link library

Queries about this were posted to the archive a year or so ago, and the
replies all said, essentially, "your cygwin1.dll is out of date."

As nearly as I can figure, everything on my system is completely up to date
-- and I've also reinstalled cygwin and gcc.

Any suggestions on what to try next?
